Historical Traveler Reviews Maxim Hotel Verona
We only stayed for one night. Room was OK, breakfast was OK, personal very friendly and we got very good internet price. Only stay in this hotel if you got a car.
Grumpy head waiter
This hotel is not convenient for visiting the signts of Verona unless you want to spend a fortune on taxi;s
The Head Waiter was grumpy and very unhelpful. We had Evening meal once in the hotel but after the serivce we received, ate out other nights.
The Receptionists were very helpful
this hotels biggest fault is the location.....really far from the arena and you have to walk a mile to get a bus. Service was good and breakfast was ok....all in all ...nothing special
Unless you are driving, stay in the city
Absolutely no charm and NOT easy to get to the city center despite what their website says. YOu can take a cab to the train station & then buses to the arena. But it was a major hassle. Unless you have a car that you want to park, I would not stay here. Front desk person very nice when I arrived exasperated with public transport but if you really want to see verona, stay in the old town.

The return bus from Lazise, at 1.30, was nearly full of school kids returning home but they thinned out rapidly as we approached Verona. The countryside appears to be very fertile with many vineyards, olive groves, fruit trees, ...
... internal debate, I decided to take a train. My logic was that I would arrive there sooner and get to see the town more, and also not hurt myself but pushing too hard. Between not having done a ton of riding the last couple months and all the additional weight on my bike, I knew I wasn't going to be able to get through another 120km day.
The train took longer then I expected because I had to transfer at Verona Porta Nuova and wait ...
We got a later start due to a restless nights sleep. Nice hotel but noisy neighborhood around it. The weather however was perfect for touring Verona today. After breakfast at the hotel (coffee was strong!!) we set out to cover many of the sights we had seen the day before on our wine tour but did not stop and enjoy.
We started at the Arena di Verona. An old coliseum akin to the one in Rome but smaller. It is however the third largest in Europe. ...
... and the rest is history. Amazingly we made it into the courtyard without being trampled and actually witnessed multiple Juliets on the balcony of all ages and some were even men..or Romeo's...I don't know.
The artistic aspect of this courtyard is that many people write their names and graffiti the walls declaring their undying love in colourful ways. One may even purchase Romeo ...
